Temple Emergency Acton Corps (TEAC), in affiliation with Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University, was founded by a group of medical students in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. TEAC’s mission is twofold: to educate future physicians in medical disaster relief and utilize medical students as a resource for the provision of sub-acute disaster relief care. TEAC is dedicated to providing compassionate, culturally conscious medical care in cases of local, national, and international disasters.
